Quotes

[Voiceover, describing the Apollo 12 mission]

Amazing
2 April 2002 | by (Minnesota) – See all my reviews

This series is simply amazing. It is well acted, well written, and you can't beat the subject matter. I have never seen a better show. Everyone in this series is wonderful and the dialog is so crisp. It is a great tribute to an important era in American history. I recommend it for everyone.
